Entry is completed online and is free. There are 6 different categories and prizes will include a year’s membership of both the Royal Horticultural Society and Dorset Wildlife Trust and a wildlife gardening masterclass at the Hampton Court Flower Show.
What you do for wildlife on your doorstep can make a big difference. And it’s not just wildlife that benefits. You’ll feel good too: getting outdoors can be both relaxing and invigorating.
The more people who do their bit for the wildlife in their patch, the bigger the UK’s garden nature reserve. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is funding the competition, and has appointed The Wildlife Trusts and the Royal Horticultural Society to run it.
The competition seeks to find some of the best examples of wildlife gardens in the UK - ones that will inspire others to take action to turn their gardens into wildlife havens. Remember that size doesn’t matter small-scale actions can still reap big rewards for wildlife.
The competition is open to everybody in the UK, including individuals, communities and businesses.
